According to Hits Daily Double, the rapper’s sophomore album moved approximately 116,131 copies during its first week of release. While Billboard’s final data will differ slightly, such disparity will not impact the ultimate conclusion: “At. Long. Last. A$AP” was the May 25-31 tracking week’s best-selling album, and it will debut atop the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.

Released in 2013, predecessor “Long. Live. A$AP” moved 139,000 first-week copies. It also topped the sales chart.

With Track Equivalent Album (10 single sales = 1 album sale) and Streaming Equivalent Album (1500 single streams = 1 album sale) data included, “At. Long. Last” claims a weekly consumption total of ~143,483 units. That will earn it the #1 position on the revamped Billboard 200.
